On the surface, how is Clearwire offering WiMAX unfair to them? Thats like saying ATT shouldnt be allowed to sell phones in their territories, kinda silly. Yes, yes, we all know Clearwire is Sprint rebranded, but it is in fact its own entity, with a seperate CEO CFO CTO et cetera..., HQ'ed in its own location. For all legal intents and purposes, its a seperate company.
The fact is, Sprint owns a majority of the combines Clearwire company, roughly equal to about 51%. The fact is, Sprint can't just startup or buy into separate companies to avoid contract disputes or antitrust scrutiny. I mean, in theory, AT&T could buy 51% of Verizon but not merge the companies, and therefore, you would assume that the two divisions of AT&T are separate legal companies and therefore full market competitors, even though they wouldn't be.
iPCS has a valid dispute. If Sprint owned a minority stake in Clearwire, it might not be an issue.
